I don't know about you but I love receiving mail ~ the real physical type. Electronic mail, text messages etc are great too but there is always something quite special about mail that lands on your doormat.
Yesterday I arrived home to find these on my doormat ~ obviously not like this, they had been suitably attired in a handsome padded envelope for their journey across the pond!
Just look at what was inside that gorgeous oriental pouch!
I joined the scissor fob exchange over on the Friendly Stitchers Yahoo group and this is what I received from my partner Jillann. Now, Jillann had a spot of bother with the mailing process and it was originally returned to her before it made it's way to me ~ but a happy ending!
I love the sweet design and the colours that Jillann has used, and aren't those scissors just the cutest? Also included were three reels of HDF silk - Thank You so much Jillann!
I have heard that my package was received too ~ here is what I sent
I stitched Jillann's initial using a freebie alphabet on 40ct Antique White with Polstitches floss in Hedgerow and used the same thread for the cord. A few crystals in matching shades were added to the bottom.
Jillann mentioned that she liked rabbits so having used a thread called Hedgerow it seemed appropriate to have a wee bunny on the back.
I included a few threads and also a pack of Cath Kidston tissues. I was so pleased to hear that my exchange being received had brightened a gloomy day for Jillann.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Tuesday Stitching Group last night ~ catching up with peoples' news, both happy & sad. I worked a little more on my Sampler Lady ~ if I can work out how to get a photograph out of my phone I can show you a size comparison between my 1/1 version and that of the Lovely C who completed it over two.
Today is Wednesday ~ may seem obvious but I need reminding! After the glut of Bank Holidays resulting in shorter working weeks I am having issues remembering where I am.
Till next time.
